Vintage Door Knob DIY

                         A Bouquet of Vintage Knobs

My Bouquet of Precious Door Knobs
I wanted to do something with my collection of Knobs.  This is easy, and I will tell you all the supplies at the end, first I want to share some photo's!

Do you see the keys I hung?
One very vintage & long key, all old, yes
more items I collect!

For now they will sit here in the entry way!

I plan to paint this Antique table on wheels, that
will be another post, still thinking of which color to use
and just how I want to do it?

 4x4 untreated wood post, I cut 81/2 inches
Paint, poly, several round dowels cut to different lengths,
Vintage knobs, a few drawer pulls, keys, twine and
vintage door knob plates.

All I did was drill scattered holes on top of 4x4 for round dowels.  Painted wood block distressed aqua and also painted dowels green.  I only polyed the wood block.  Screwed on the plates, applied the knobs on the dowels, tied keys on with twine,  and happiness was mine!

Have a good day!

Were did you get that great collection of knobs? Door hardware is hard to come by in my neck of the woods. I sure like how you are displaying them - they need to be out in plain site - too pretty to hide! Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!
